About This Class

RECEIVE AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED QUALIFICATION IN 'ACUPRESSURE THERAPY' UPON SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THIS COURSE!

*Internationally Recognised Qualification*

Acupressure Facelift – This Acupressure treatment is performed by applying pressure with the fingertips into key areas of the face and neck.  This helps to stimulate blood flow and collagen production, while also balancing the whole body.  This results in firmer face muscles supporting the skin layer above in order to produce tighter facial tone and a more youthful appearance.

Studies focused on this particular technique have shown significant and lasting benefit.  In one particular study of 300 cases 90% of those treated had marked beneficial results with only one course of treatment.

Fine lines may be entirely eliminated and deeper wrinkles diminished.  Bags under the eyes can be reduced, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimised. Other likely results include: moisturising of the skin with increased local circulation of blood and lymph to the face, increased collagen production, muscle tone, tightening of the pores, brightening of the eyes, improvement of hormonal balance that can help treat acne and reduction of stress which can often be evident in the face.

A course of treatment generally consists of 12 treatments administered once weekly.  A course of treatment holds its benefits for 2 to 5 years.  However, regular “top-up” treatments can be useful to extend effects and one-off treatments are often used by clients to achieve that bright, healthy glow for special occasions.

Acupressure Facelift is a gentle non-invasive approach to looking younger.  Although ageing is a natural process, this therapy helps delay the visible signs of ageing and prevent further damage in the future by means of simple, natural and effective techniques.

During the treatment, over ninety face and neck muscles are systematically worked. Acupressure points are activated, releasing deep-seated tension, freeing layers of muscle and connective tissue.  The technique used ensures that circulation is improved and the tissues can glide smoothly over the deeper layers of muscle and bone.

Tension can very easily build up in our facial muscles without us realising it.  Over a period of time, habitual thoughts and emotions can lock themselves into expressions on our faces – particularly around the eyes and mouth.  This can be exacerbated by additional factors such as excessive exposure to the sun, pollution, alcohol, smoking, poor diet, lack of sleep, the effects of gravity and every day stresses and strains.  Under such conditions muscles can actually “dry up” and contract, encouraging ageing and the formation of wrinkles as the face loses its muscle tone and elasticity and begins to sag.

The whole process has been described as a bit like ironing out the creases, making the skin feel smoother and softer and improving the complexion and skin tone.

Facelift Slide 4: What is acupressure. Acupressure is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to gradually press key healing points along the surface of the body. These points help to stimulate the body's natural self curative abilities. Acupressure was developed in Asia over 5000 years ago, using the power and sensitivity of the hand. Acupressure therapy is effective in the relief of stress related ailments and is ideal for self treatment and preventative health care. Because of its amazing ability to boost the immune system, Acupressure releases tension increases circulation, reduces pain and helps to develop spirituality and vibrant health. When acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promotes circulation of blood and enhance the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupressure therapy could be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, detoxify the body for greater health and beauty and toned facial and back muscles. The applications of using acupressure include relieving pain, balancing body energy and maintaining good health. Acupressure is healing touch reduces muscular tension, increases circulation and in Ebel's deep relax ation by relieving stress. Acupressure therapy strengthens resistance to disease and promotes wellness 5. Facelift Slide 5: how to apply pressure to acupressure points use prolonged finger pressure directly on each point. Gradual, steady penetrating pressure for approximately three minutes is ideal. Each point will feel somewhat different when you press it. Some points will feel tense, while others air often sore or a quite impressed. How much pressure to apply to any point varies from person to person, depending on their level of fitness. A general guideline to follow is that the pressure should be firm enough so that it hurts good in other words, something between pleasant firm pressure and outright pain. Although you may be tempted to massage, you rub the entire area. It's best just to hold the point steadily with direct finger pressure. The rule of thumb is to apply slow firm pressure on the point at a 90 degree angle from the surface of the skin. If you were pulling the skin than the angle of the pressure is incorrect consciously and gradually directed pressure into the center of the part of the body you're working on. It's important to apply and release finger pressure gradually because this allows the tissues time to respond, thus promoting healing, the better your concentration as you move your fingers slowly into and out of the points. The more effective the treatment will be 6. Facelift Slide 6: self acupressure. Limit yourself acupressure sessions to an hour the most. The effects of acupressure can be quite strong, so if you work for too long, too much energy is released and complications such as nausea and headaches can occur. Tension tends to concentrate around acupressure points, also referred to as acupoints. When a muscle isn't spasm or chronically tens, the muscle fibers contract due to the secretion of lactic acid caused by fatigue, trauma, stress, chemical imbalances or poor circulation. As an acupressure point is held, the muscle tension yields to the finger pressure, enabling the muscle fibers to be long gait and relax. This helps the blood to flow freely and toxins to be released and eliminated. Increased circulation also brings more oxygen and other nutrients to the affected areas. This increases the body's resistance to illness and promotes a longer, healthier, more vital life. When the blood and bio electrical energy concert Gye late properly, there is a greater sense of harmony, health and well being 7. Facelift Slide 7: key points to remember. To achieve the full benefit of acupressure, you should choose a comfortable, safe environment that lends itself to deep relaxation. Ideally, you should wear comfortable clothing. Tight collars, belts or shoes can obstruct circulation. It's also a good idea to keep your fingernails trimmed fairly short to prevent any discomfort or injury to the skin while you work, avoid practicing acupressure right before a big meal or on a full stomach. Wait at least an hour after eating a light meal or even longer after eating a heavy meal. Practicing and complete acupressure routine when your stomach is full can inhibit the flow of blood to the digestive organs and may cause nausea. Avoid ice drinks, especially during the winter months, because extreme cold generally weakens your system and can counter act the benefits of acupressure. A cup of hot herbal tea would be good after an acupressure session, along with a period of deep relaxation 8. Facelift Slide 8: what are meridians. The design of the Meridian network is awesome. Rather than thinking of meridians as an obscure foreign concept, you can know them as 14 tangible pathways that carry energy into through and out of your body. Meridians or energy pathways that connect the dots. Hundreds of tiny reservoirs of heat, electromagnetic and more subtle energies along the surface of the skin. Known in traditional Chinese medicine, TCM. As acupuncture points, these energy dots are hot. Spots can be stimulated with needles or physical pressure to release or redistribute energy . Acupuncture points air on the surface of the skin, but the meridians they open into travel deep into the body and through each of the organs and muscle groups. Your meridians are your body's energy bloodstream. Each meridian is named for the primary organ, or system that it services. Two additional energy pathways, called central and governing vessel are also thought of his meridians. The other 12 meridians form a chain with one meridian linked to the next. The central and governing meridians opened more directly to the environment. The energies that surround you can enter and exit through them 9. Facelift Slide 9: the role of the meridians. Meridians affect every organ and every physiological system, including the immune and nervous systems, the endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, digestive, skeletal, muscular and lymphatic systems. Each system is fed by at least one meridian in the way an artery carries blood. Meridian carries energy as the body's energy bloodstream. The meridians bring vitality and balance, remove blockages, adjust metabolism and even determine the speed and form of cellular change. Their flow is as critical as the flow of blood. Your life and health depend on both. If a meridians energy is obstructed or unregulated, the system it feeds is jeopardized. If you think of the meridians as an energy transportation system, a complex traffic network, you have a concrete model of how Meridian Energy's interact. The meridian pathways need regular maintenance and repair because disturbances in Meridian Energy's correlate with ill health well, many of the essential structures of the human body, including the meridians, evolved millions of years ago. These structures evolved to support a body that was adapting to a markedly different world than we encounter today. So it is not surprising that your body's energy transportation system may sometimes get its lines crossed and may deliver too much energy toe one organ or not enough to another 10. Facelift Slide 10: the meridian clock. Every organ in your body has a two hour repair maintenance schedule to keep on a daily basis. Most of us in the West have never been aware of this. But Chinese. And are you Vedek? Holistic health care practitioners have known this for hundreds of years. It is important to know these cycles if you want to understand your health problems and learn to treat yourself if you feel sluggish, foggy, a key, etcetera. At these particular times of day, you will know which organises trying to repair the damage done to it. And these feelings you're having are the result of the energy being expended to do these repairs. 11. Facelift Slide 11: key points to remember. There are 14 main meridians, 12 paired meridians and two single meridians. Each meridian is named for the primary organ or system that it services. Each Meridian has a two hour repair maintenance schedule during the 24 hour cycle. The meridians air abbreviated as follows. S T stomach H T heart B l bladder P pericardium G B gall bladder L you lungs CV central vessel s P spleen s I small intestine. Okay, I kidney T h triple heater l V liver L I Large intestine gv governing vessel. 12. Facelift Slide 12: essentials before getting started. Use prolonged finger pressure directly on each point. Gradual, steady penetrating pressure for approximately three minutes is ideal. Apply pressure on the point at a 90 degree angle from the surface of the skin. The pressure should be firm enough so that it hurts good. In other words, something between pleasant firm pressure and outright pain. It's important to apply and release finger pressure gradually because this allows the tissues time to respond. That's promoting healing. Remember your breathing. Take a long, slow, deep breaths as you were inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. 13. Facelift Slide 13: how to begin and end an acupressure treatment. You can begin and end on acupressure treatment by doing the following place. One hand on the client's forehead and one hand on their navel. There are e S r emotional stress release points located on the forehead. So by placing one hand here, you have to increase the blood flow to the area and thus help to diffuse any emotional stress in the client system. One hand on the naval will also help to diffuse any conflict in their system. This protocol is a really great way of connecting with your client initially and preparing them for the deep level of balancing you were about to complete. I would usually hold these points for about three minutes at the beginning and end of an acupressure treatment. 14. Facelift Slide 14: acupressure facelift. Step one.
